If We Won’t, Then Who Will? – An HK appeal

published on July 29, 2013

The fear of being homeless
The angst of being landless
The trauma of ill health
The sorrow of neglect

Seeking assistance for the rehabilitation, care and support of members of the Arippa community:

The forest dwellers of Arippa now stand neglected in society, with neither home nor land. The community speaks of how they have been cheated through the Chengara package and now remain ostracized from society.

Their grievances of being landless, without homes, being denied the basics of food and a life in fear of being stricken by contagions have never been addressed by the government. The tales of woe narrated by Arippa community is endless.

The Arippas belong to the group of forsaken Adivasi Dalits, conveniently denied the right to live with basic dignity. In all there are around 1300 families who live in dismal conditions in make shift shelters. They live in areas bordering forest lands with nothing to safeguard them human invasion or animal attacks.

The community members lack food supplies and are on the brink of starvation. This has led to varied health disorders including malnutrition. Adding to their woes is the torrential rains, bringing along with it, a series of contagious diseases. Owing to lack of medical facilities and non availability of medical centres anywhere in the vicinity, treatment remains almost impossible.

All pleas, protests and agitations directed towards government agencies have fallen on deaf ears. Main stream media have blacked out this struggle for their basic rights. In each and every budget crores of rupees are marked for Adivasi’s but none of these reaches the hands of them. While organised minorities know how to claim the freebies offered to them and create more of them, Hindu Adivasi’s are neglected. Ruling UDF will leave these Adivasis in the hands of conversion mafia and opposition will come to aid if and only if elections are around.

For past six months, these Adivasi’s are struggling, Thanks to Hindu organisations who came forward to fight along with them have raised their hopes. Hindu Aikya Vedi leader Shri Kummanam Rajasekharan have visited them and assured all possible help and support for their causes. Hindu Aikya Vedi have conducted medical camps and their activists are there to provide them any support they need.

It is the duty of each of us to stand behind these tribals who have been left to the perils of forest encroachers and conversion mafia. Here is a fervent plea for monetary aid, from HK, for the rehabilitation of the Arippa community members. No matter whether the amount you contribute is low or high, what matters is our willingness to come forward and support the causes of neglected Hindus rather than being a passive bystander.

    Seeking Aid is not a solution
    Despite my best efforts I fail to understand the need for this call for financial help. Why? Well, we all know that there is money allotted by the government but is being siphoned off by other communities through illegal means. All of us also know how this is being done. Despite this complete information are we helpless in effectively stopping this? Does it mean that let them continue to enjoy the benefits because we can’t stop them? If so, how can we place our faith on such leaders and their capabilities. Just like Modi Ji once said “Kuch to karke dikhavo”. God helps only those who help themselves.

    if we wont, who will
    This is very tragic. Hindus have been reduced to third rate citizens in their own land-thanks to lack of unity among them and gimmicks of politicians of all hues.Even bjp govt, at the centre did nothing to improve the lot of downtrodden hindus.Rather they excelled congress in appeasing the muslims by establishing minorities commission and by increasing haj subsidy and number of haj pilgrims.Now congress is bettering bjp by offering freebies to muslims which are unconstitutional in the garb of sachar commission.Despite granting pakistan to muslims exclusively indian politics has become muslim-centric.Each party is doing its best to keep fanatic elements among muslims in good humour be it at the cost of the nation.
